No More Bored Kids with the Summer Savings at Dollar General 

 
 
   At Dollar General all of your summer needs are answered. I was given a challenge and that was to have my kids spend $35 to get as many things as they could find to stop the age old cry of I am bored. I think they did a super job. I was frankly surprised by the amount of items we were able to buy. I have children that are all different ages and they were each able to find things that would amuse them.
 

No More Bored Kids!

Here is how we intend to stay happy and not get bored!

 
 
You can see my kids got tons of stuff. They all walked out with two bags each. I gave them each a budget and they had an amazing time picking out things and figuring out who got the best deal.
 
 
This is how my youngest was going to fight boredom
 
1) Make drawings with chalk
2) Trace his brother and sister with chalk
3) make hop scotch with the chalk
4) Play hot wheels on the table
5) Build a hot wheel trail
6) Hungry hippo game "to play with his friends and maybe mom"
 
 
 
7) She is going to color
8) Write in a journal
9) Write letters
10) Have a sticker collection
11) Get her nails done
12) Play marbles
13) Hide marbles
14) Play princess card games
15) Play games hiding cards
 
 
 
16) Go swimming with his goggles
17) Jump off the diving board with his ear plugs
18) Do a puzzle with mom and dad
19) Have his brother and sister count the puzzle pieces when they annoy him
20) Jot down notes and erase them
21) Make up a story in his notebook
22) Write letters to friends
23) Play blocks with his friends and maybe with siblings if they are good
24) Build Airplane
25) Play outside with the airplane
26) Color pictures with color pencils
27) Play tic tac toe
28) Letter of the alphabet will be used for spy papers
29) He plans to use his brother's cars to make an airport with paper people and cars
30) He may play cards with his sister if she is nice and doesn't tell his friends he used pink cards
 
 
 
I can't tell you what was more fun in going shopping with my kids. The ideas they came up with to not get bored or the pictures they wanted me to take of them while playing with their new toys. I was really pleased with the amount of things I could buy with so little! Dollar General is more than a place to pick up your staples it is the play to increase your summer fun.

    What a great idea to beat summer boredom. I think I might buy each child a basket to put their stuff in. I might just allow them to play with it after their chores are done.

    Thanks for sharing! I love Dollar General!
